Murray Library is the main library serving the University of Sunderland - the original structure dates from the 1970's. The University recognised that the nature of the learning environment and integration of IT no longer met the needs and expectations of today's students and that upgrading was required.
The university commissioned FaulknerBrowns to create a modern and attractive learning environment incorporating new settings for social learning, including a cafe and wireless lounge. PC clusters were transformed to create opportunities for individual and group learning using innovative furniture solutions. The dynamic interior design creates the opportunity to promote the library's services to the university's students and academic staff.
